Dave Burden has his sights aimed high after an early season milestone for Red Deer Cruise Night, an event he organizes.

Dave Burden has his sights aimed high after an early season milestone for Red Deer Cruise Night, an event he organizes.

On May 22, a record was set for number of vehicles at the show with 625 — 612 cars or trucks, and 13 motorcycles.

“It’s awesome, it blew me away because it was kind of cloudy,” said Burden. “It was the first night people were actually able to attend without the fear of a hail storm coming down on us.”

Cars ranged from the 1920s and 1930s right up to brand new models at the show, which Burden said is one of the largest in the country.

He has heard from people all over the world about his show — a Los Angeles-based car club is planning on coming later this year and a German who is moving to Alberta has already talked with Burden about coming into Red Deer to see the cars.

But now Burden has wants to try for even more. By the end of the year he wants to have one night with more than 700 cars coming out to one night.

The cruise nights, which include food vendors and entertainment, take place on Thursdays throughout the summer in the Parkland Mall northeast parking lot, 6-9 p.m. weather permitting, 4747 67th St. in Red Deer.

There is no charge to attend but there is a donation box at the entrance.
